Hailee Steinfeld could soon be an Avenger
Per Variety, Marvel has offered the 22-year-old a lead role in its upcoming Disney+ ‘Hawkeye’ series. Hailee will portray Kate Bishop, a character from the comics who eventually takes over the ‘Hawkeye’ mantle from Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner).
Variety adds that accepting the role would probably mean that Hailee will be a permanent fixture in the MCU, as Disney has a penchant for creating franchises around lesser-known characters such as the Guardians of the Galaxy.
If the deal pushes through, this will be the actress’ second stint with Marvel, having first done voice work as Gwen Stacy in the animated film ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse‘.
